This article aims to give a detailed micro-level curricular analysis of the extent to which the intended mathematics curriculum matches the potentially implemented curriculum using the case of Turkey. The article makes inferences about what it means to have a match or mismatch between these two types of curricula. As a result, it is clear that even though there is a close match between the intended and the potentially implemented mathematics curricula, such a match does not seem to be enough to help students to have a solid understanding of targeted mathematical concepts outlined in the overall Turkish curricular standards.
